Consider NOT downloading your pics directly from the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I can't download pics from my hp photosmart M415 camera to my hp laptop, only vides are importing but not single pics. What should I do?


Apparently whatever program you're using to download is set to download only videos, not pictures.The best way to download pictures and videos from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures and videos from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo/video cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Cannot find the following folder for media file import


It's very difficult to follow exactly what you did. The easiest solution may be to use a card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. Next time, don't overload your card.

How do i download my pics from my phone to my


Download the Sony Ericsson PC Suite and install it on your PC if you use Windows.

The phone is a device and as such needs drivers installed in order for Windows to detect and install it as a media source. After installing the Sony Ericsson software, you may not need to actually run the software suite to access the pictures on your phone.

Importing Video from camera to WMM


You can always search for a video converter for your camera. As far as I was aware, video files are in a AVI format which should be able to play with quicktime player, VLC media player or even windows media player as long as you have windows codec pack or vista codec pack downloaded.
